    (PS: What up with MS support installing a Volume licence...? MS needs to do some serious audits on these outsourced support people, I think)
    I think this is the answer:

    I bought the PC a month ago. Fairly new Dell 7010. Cannot vouch for the providence but person selling always has a number in stock. He claims.....
    I don't think the volume (MAK) license came from MS.

    Plausible.

    Worrying though, is a refurbisher buys Dell and installs a VL (why?) when it has a valid Win 8 upgrade licence. Then MS support trots along and upgrades/repairs without checking the licence?...

    Some crazy going on out there...

    I have bought from the guy multiple times. In the past the Dell's he sold came with Win 10 activated. This time the two I bought came with Win 8.1. I asked why and he said it wasnt't free to upgrade anymore so he just passes them through as they came from Dell.

    Fair enough, I do not mean to apportion blame, just wondering...why they would sell an OEM PC with a Volume licence.

    Should they take posession of a DELL trade-in, it should be reset to factory, rather than retain the enterprise installation from whence it came.

    As a follow up. As suggested I recently recovered the Win 8 OEM keys from the two Dell's using ShowKeyPlus and used them for "change product key" option and all seems OK. I don't have to use Ease of Access settings anymore.
